WERA 96.7 FM is turning two years young and in honor of this momentous occasion, we are holding our first ever Winter Fund Drive to raise money for Arlington’s only commercial-free community radio station!
Since going on the air on December 6, 2015, more than 100 different daily and weekly programs have together provided Arlington with more than 15,000 hours of original radio content! The WERA schedule now features programs that offer thought provoking content you won’t hear anywhere else: programs that delve into our curiosities, that offer tips on how to be practical with security, that help you land your next gig, and tell you where to find the best dining, dancing, and nightlife in the DMV. We also have a schedule chock full of programs devoted entirely to music! Some focus solely on the local music being made right here, in and around Arlington. Others focus on brand new music from around the world. Some explore classical, jazz, blues, folk, or bluegrass and some feature songs that, though they may be obscure or forgotten – keep you coming back for more.
WERA is a unique and valuable radio station for Arlington because it’s your friends and neighbors who are producing the content! They know the kinds of information and entertainment you want and they volunteer their time to create the programs that matter to you. Now we’re offering you a chance to give back some love to the people who love to produce radio for you. By donating during our Winter Fund Drive you become part of Arlington’s own community broadcast station and you help to ensure that commercial-free programming continues for years to come. Every contribution will help with the continued success of WERA! And for as little as $15, we will give you, our valued listeners, what you really want: FREE SWAG! We have fantastic merchandise adorned with the WERA logo that you will not be able to receive anywhere else!
